Trump-Loving Republicans Protest Islamic Law in Paradise Valley

Never mind that there's virtually no chance that Sharia, or Islamic law, will be imposed on the United States: ACT for America, a Virginia-based extremist group, organized anti-Islam protests all across the country against Sharia on Saturday. In Phoenix, a fairly large crowd gathered to march and wave signs at Paradise Valley Park. Although we saw plenty of protesters predictably sporting Trump gear, the biggest surprise was how many weapons were on hand. We're talking guns, baseball bats, and riot gear, as well as military acting as security. Photos by Jim Louvau.
